Florida Striders Track Club
Total Time = 00m
Overall Rank = 77/252
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 11/31
Pre-race routine:

Got all the kids up trying not to wake up my wife. Drank coffee. Ate a Clif Bar on the way.
Event warmup:

Picked up my timing chip. Herded the kids around.
  • 23m 17s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 29s  min/mile

I kept an eye on my Polar to see what my pace was. I was trying to maintain 7:30's. The course was pretty crowded for the first mile or so. After that I didn't have to worry about stepping on anybody's heels.

My HR was in a decent range on the way out but it spiked towards the end. My legs felt good. I don't really like the shorter races so this was not my thing.

I suppose I could have gone a little harder but my avg HR was pretty near my the top zone already (99%). (max was 111%)
What would you do differently?:

Get more sleep the night before.
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed some water. Found the kids. Helped them pin on their numbers for the fun run.

All my kids (and my S-I-L) were there for the fun run.

Walked the fun run with my two year old in my arms two thirds of a mile. She walked beside me for the last third.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Most of my running is longer distances so I am not used to an all out effort for 23 minutes.

Event comments:

Well run race!
